Happy New Year!!!

I hope every one has a Happy and safe New Year!!!


Waking up this morning, I thought "Gosh morning already?" I was not looking forward to kids waking me. Two weeks off from school has been no fun around here with RAD kids. I love my kids don't get me wrong. But every day bickering can drive a person crazy. I think they are just getting at that age.
I read a post of another blogger with rad kids and her blog just made me feel good. It said "living on purpose" I have been in a funk lately and feeling sorry or sad or whatever you want to call it. I have not wanted to do much my mood at work sucks. Each day slides by and WHAT? Nothing same old stuff. SO instead I am pulling myself out of this Guck, I am going to use "living on purpose" as a motivation. We should always be greatful for the wonderful things that god has given us but some times we (I) get in a Guck(my word) and forget. Then something like that INSPIRES me.

Merry Christmas

Today was a day of just relaxing,my day off. I took the kids to see santa. The mall was crazy busy.

The girls Birth grandparents called and left a message asking to see them. And when I didn't return the call right away they stoped by. So I was kinda ticked about that. They can wait until after Christmas to see them. I have to work, So Jim will have to do the opening of gifts with out me. We usually have it on a diff. day so the kids think Santa came when we are both off. But it didn't work out that way this year.

I Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!!

I have been sick. I have been working on Christmas frames for family. I didn't take a picture of the frames before so I took one of a diff. size frame.
Being sick and having a 4yr old asking me every 2 min. "can I have something to eat?" I didn't get much rest.
We finally got some snow and the kids are excited to make snowmen. I on the other hand will not be participating, tooo cold for me!!!
Not sure if I like the way the pictures loaded on here. I should spend some time messing around and learning all the quirks.

Memories of my DAD

As I look through my picture files I realize I didn't have alot of pictures of my Dad.

I started to break down and cry. My Dad was an awsome dad. He would be the neighbor hood bike fixer or scraped knee fixer. If you were a kid in my neighbor hood and had red die on a skinned knee, You had seen my Dad.

A friend I grew up with and I played out side all day. I don't remember watching tv. We would make mud pies and cakes. If we needed something to put them in My dad would be working in the garage and would scrounge around and find something for us to play with.

My Dad also would fix everybody's flat tire with out complaint. He had these old patches that you had to clamp on and light on fire. he hung it on a hook in the garage and we would watch with aww.

I guess I have held all this in for a while. I don't think it has really hit me. Ive been so busy with my own family and helping my Mom that I don't really have time for my self.

This blog I'm doing for me. So I can learn to take some time for my self.. head phone in all

My 2 sweethearts

Brrrrr it's cold and I'm a wimp!!!!

Today our new couch came. I had to move a bounch of stuff so the guy's wouldn't knock stuff over. I did get some gifts wraped. Rachel and I had a little wrapping party before we had to pick up kids. I felt a little guilty taking Cowen to daycare but I wanted to get things done.

My Mission

I have been so busy lately. Last night I had a meeting with a group that are trying to start a Support group for adoptive and pre-adoptive families in our area. They are creating a web site to go to for information and I am a board memeber. We are still working out all the legal stuff. We have a lawyer that works as a guardian at litum for the foster care system and is an adoptive parent as a memeber, It's all confusing for me right now but I'm excited about being involved.

I also mentioned that I wanted to start a place where we can take donations of car seats, diapers, clothes, shoes That would be for our foster care parents when they get a child in the middle of the night or on the weekend ad they can call up and ask for what ever they need, Maybe on a loan(borrow) and return it when their done??? still need to work on that.

So thats what Ive been up to besides working and sick kids. The only one that has not got sick is ME.
I think I have all my Christmas shopping done. I think we went over board on the kids but thats ok. It is soooooo cold today I want to go back to bed for the rest of the day But I am cleaning out my bedroom and everything is now in my kitchen, So I guess I should get it picked up before I have to go and pick kids up.
So I hope everyone is keeping warm today.
